Jeep went a decade without an SUV with a legitimate third row after the demise of the Commander in 2010. But that changed with the arrival of the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L and later with the revival of the flagship Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer nameplates for 2022.
Jeep has added some frosting to the big SUV recipe with the stretched Wagoneer L and Grand Wagoneer L. They are designed to rival the Cadillac Escalade ESV, GMC Yukon XL, Chevrolet Suburban and Lincoln Navigator.
The 2023 Wagoneer L and Grand Wagoneer L measure 12 inches longer than the standard wheelbase models.
All of the luxury, technology and safety gear on the standard models remain, but there is more storage in back. The long-wheelbase models offer up to 44.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row, 15.8 cubic feet more than the shorter models.
The L models feature a 130-inch wheelbase, a 7-inch increase from the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer.
The third row in the L variants also features a pair of storage compartments, each with 1.8 liters of capacity to hold electronic devices and other items.
In another change, the longer SUVs are powered by two versions of Stellantis' new 3.0-liter, twin-turbo inline six-cylinder Hurricane engine. The Wagoneer L features the Hurricane that produces 420 hp and 468 pound-feet of torque, while the Grand Wagoneer L is packed with a high-output version with 510 hp and 500 pound-feet of torque.
